Penetrate the void with The Haters “Drunk on Decay.” Justin Lakes joins us to erode this classic CD from 1997. It was one of the most widely available Haters albums at the time and its impact is still felt today. GX provided us with some background info on this album as well as other “Drunk on Decay” performances. De-cay is good-cay!
We are joined by Chris Sienko of As Loud As Possible magazine to discuss the legendary Emil Beaulieau “Anti Performance” cassette from 1991. After having been mentioned on nearly every Noisextra episode, we finally devote an entire episode to the “greatest living noise artist.” Chris dug in extensively to which anti-record is being played when as well as the history behind each record. We also discuss visiting RRR, and all try our own versions of Beaulieau’s dance moves. Straighten your tie, sharpen your record needle, and destroy all music.
GX Jupitter-Larsen of the Haters came over and we listened to “Live in Khabarvosk, CCCP” which has two recordings taken from a Russian jazz festival in 1988. Discussion of the sound is dispensed with quickly and G.X. provides many anecdotes and pieces of Merzbow, Haters and noise culture history.
